Aujan installs USD30 million packaging lines

Saudi Arabia: Wednesday, November 12 - 2003 @ 08:57

Aujan Industries, based in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom, has invested more than $30 million with the installation of new filling lines. The latest addition to the factory complements the increased PET bottle production facility added last year.

The new technology, which will package some of the Kingdom’s best-loved brands including Vimto and Rani, gives Aujan the capacity to produce up to 1.5 million per day PET bottles.

“The new production facilities are part of a much larger vision for Aujan,” said Bader Aujan, the company’s managing director. “It’s Aujan’s strategy to ensure that we can always provide the best service to our customers and consumers and with this capacity increase we can ensure even greater levels of reliability and quality from product ingredients right through to filling and delivery.”

Aujan’s production facilities also incorporate a glass non-returnable bottle line and a Tetra Pak package-filling capability for a range of sizes and formats, enabling the company to cater to a diverse range of markets and adapt its manufacturing according to consumer needs.

Aujan has recently installed one of the most advanced PET machines in the Kingdom to produce its own patented sports cap for the children’s drink Hani. The facility runs for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with several lines in operation at any one time.

“The fact that we work with all packaging formats highlights Aujan’s strength and diversity,” added Bader. “Because we have this level of expertise across all packaging specialties, we can ensure continued innovation and choice for both customers and consumers. Aujan is a hugely innovative company – the first to introduce family-size PET bottles and the single-serve with sports caps – the latest PET launch in the Kingdom.

Aujan changed its status from a limited-liability company to a joint-stock company earlier this year in a move designed to ensure the company was well-placed for continued growth and efficiency.
